Blue featherOne myth of awakening is that it roasts all our karma. It does roast much of our backlog, but the sprouted seeds that are unfolding continue to unfold during this life. We continue to work through our karma, but now from a new perspective.

In time, the awakening becomes established and we’re deeply grounded in our infinite and eternal nature. Events of the world have less and less impact. We simply experience what is arising, allowing it to complete with little friction. Karma arises and is resolved quickly and smoothly. As we make progress, we begin processing more and more of the collective backlog.

However, we all have a major blind spot or two and lessons that are a little more challenging. Even the awake are likely to experience circumstances that are more difficult. We may take a little more time to come to acceptance. But again, this can happen much faster than it would have prior. However, I’ve seen a few examples where the blind spot was large enough that it wasn’t seen or accepted, but acted out instead.

Recently, major karma has shown up here as an unexpected health challenge. This tested my depth of acceptance. It’s significant but treatable, something to work through and heal. It’s also clear I have Divine support through this necessary experience.

As a result, I’ve been more focused on self-care and less on spiritual musings. You’re likely to see less writing for a while. We’ll see how it unfolds. The net result should be a significant limitation falling away, both personally and collectively.

Today I became both a grandfather and a great uncle. Same day, different parts of the world.

Best of the season and a very Happy 2022!

    Hi David!

    Yes a very big myth!!!!
    Those fucking karmas :-d ….
    Besides ancestral karma/trauma, the very sticky developmental trauma we all have does not get roasted (the orphaned parts that are cast away … and these are deeply imbalancing our nervous system and lead to mental and physical illness)
    I have seen this in several awake people.

    From my perspective….these 2 are most influential in disease….our own developmental trauma and ancestral trauma.

    Look into “the emotion code” (a book) …. it is very good for illness and extremely simple to use. 🙂 could be of good support.

    I also do trauma work and i have very powerful energetic healing capacities and generally know tons about healing both mainstream (being a nurse) and alternative. If you want to get my perspective or feel moved to …. you can contact me any time David. 🙂

    Wishing you much love to resolve this and the best possible christmas.

    Big hug


    1. Hi Michael
      hmm – my first reply seems to have vanished…

      (laughs) Yep. This doesn’t seem to be developmental in source but has complex ties to several things in the collective. It feels more on the pattern/ archtype level. And yes, unresolved stuff seeks to find a way to resolve. It can show up as events, resistance, illness, and more.

      Have heard of the book. The key as always is awareness. Once we can see it or allow ourselves to feel it, we can begin healing the source. Otherwise, we chase effects.

      Thanks. It is indeed a memorable Christmas. 🙂

    Hi D, congratulations on becoming both a grandfather and a great uncle. This past year I
    became a great great aunt. Twice! Also lost my Mom.

    Wishing you grace every step of the way in your healing journey. The body has amazing
    ways to find its natural wholeness. I’ve been using magnets for a wide range of situations.
    They are wonderfully helpful.
    much love

    1. Congrats, Sharon! Sorry to hear about your Mom. She was a big presence in your life.

      Thank you. This will be one of those deal with the treatment to heal the problem then recover from the treatment scenarios. Not looking forward to it but as the Divine said, it’s simply something to be experienced so it can complete, both personally and collectively.

      Love to you

  7. Bill

    Well, first of all, congratulations on having an opportunity to see and experience new directly related beings come into bodies! I have found that grandfathering is the most delightful experience, one which can provide endless sharing and even openings when attuned!

    Also, it is always a pleasure to read your heart and your wisdom so honestly be present for all of us to share! It seems that even through your experience with your personal karmic issues, it can still reflect like a mirror because of your forthrightness!

    Stay well David and may we all experience more light across our dark earth in the coming year!

    1. Hey Bill
      Yes, I’ll get to play Santa again. (Ho Ho Ho!) It’s wonderful to watch them grow and become their own selves. I feel a connection to the granddaughter, though I’m not sure what it is yet.

      You’re welcome!

      There should be some improvement in the spring, a little lightening in the collective. Looking forward to that!

    David, I learned I had Type 2 diabetes ten years ago and breast cancer(!) 3 years ago.
    While the initial shock was pretty intense, what intrigued me was how quickly the experiences faded into relative oblivion once they were gone through. I often refer to my current status as “trapped in the moment.” I just don’t seem to linger over the upheavals the way I once did. So poop still happens, but it seems to hold me only while in the thick of it. Once it’s over it’s over.
    And mazel tov on the new additions to your family.

    1. Hi TO!
      Exactly. Some research to get informed, a bit of processing, and then coming to acceptance. Then its just stepping through the experience. Even a bit of fun, like experiencing the fancy body scanners.

      Interesting. I wouldn’t describe my experience as ‘trapped in the moment’ as time is very fluid. Depends on from where it’s being experienced. An absence, an infinity, very now, and a bit of past and future. It shifts around. But yeah, the drama tends to be brief.

      Thanks. It will be fun to hang out with the “little bean” and not have the challenges of early parenting like uncertainty, lack of sleep, etc.

      1. Yvonne

        Thank you Davidya for your writings. congratulations on becoming a grandfather and great uncle. I love listening to your conversations with Andrew. Wishing you a speedy recovery. Happy Christmas and a healthy new year.

      Dear David!
      Congratulations on becoming a grand father and grand uncle
      I am grateful for your blogs, book and have used your recommendations for my own path and challenges
      My prayers for a quick and complete recovery from your health challenges!

    1. Antony

      Hope you’re better soon, Davidya. And congratulations for those two surprises! What a strange turn of events eh.. Merry christmas anyway! Lets see how the collective is evolved after this, how exciting 😀

  9. Dan Mitchell

    Damn Davidya, This hasn’t been a great year for continued breathing for some of my spiritual brothers. I’m thinking your up to the challenge and I selfishly hope your work here isn’t deferred too long. I seem to remember you were offered a long life. I pray the host of healing entities gather around and surround you with love and support through your treatments. Love, Dan

    1. Thanks, Dan. It is a time when a lot of more challenging healing and karma has been arising for many. However, these are also great opportunities to clear obstacles to clarity. That’s how I’m seeing it. I’m preparing for the challenges of the process but recognizing the long-term benefits.

      It may be that starting will clear a lot and writing will arise again. We shall see. Life likes to keep us on our toes. 🙂

        Hi again, David!
        I hope your healing journey is going well!
        And yes. Collective dynamics is moving through some really crazy things, especialy today, when Russia invaided Ukraine…
        Let’s hope all this troubles end soon…

        1. Thanks, Bojan.
          Yes. Jyotish indicates this period is particularly intense with a concentration in areas ruled by Saturn. It should ease some during April, depending on your own chart and that of countries etc.

          The invasion is particularly pointless as it’s just competing intractable positions and posturing on both sides.
